Free Office Templates from Microsoft

<p>In the course of doing some work on a new course, I ran across some links which might be of interest to CPAs everywhere:</p>
<ul><li>The<strong> Accounting Format Template</strong> for invoices and other typical accounting documents. (<a href=”http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HA101423571033.aspx “>http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/assistance/HA101423571033.aspx </a>)</li>
<li><strong>Information on Financial Forecasts</strong> (http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/FX011558521033.aspx) (Note that this discusses forecasting from the perspective of someone preparing a forecast for internal use, and does not discuss any ethical obligations of CPAs related to forecasts.)</li></ul>
<p>Microsoft also has a series of templates for Office system applications for various professions.&nbsp; Links for those most likely to be used by our typical audiences follow:</p>
